Manage Tableau Server at Scale

Tableau Server Management brings together scalability, availability, manageability, and security capabilities to streamline management processes. Meet your specific deployment and configuration requirements, leverage existing technology investments and expertise, and optimize your environment to enable true self-service analytics at scale.

To meet disaster recovery requirements, reduce your RTO and achieve faster upgrades with faster backup and restore times to get current and stay current. 

Optimize Backgrounder extract refresh and subscription jobs and set Backgrounder resource limits for better workload management.

Improve operational efficiency

With Tableau Content Migration Tool, define and schedule repeatable migration plans for content management to manage the movement of content between projects, sites or Tableau Server environments--all without writing a single line of code.  

Independent Gateway
